Drop Off New Toys at Van Dyk Group for Military Children

Nov 22, 2017

The Van Dyk Group is helping with a toy drive for the children of active service members stationed at Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst. The public is welcome to join in by donating new toys, which are being collected at company offices.

The agency will accept donations of new, unwrapped toys in its office lobbies during office hours until Thursday, Dec. 7 at noon.

The toys will be distributed to the children of the five squadrons of the 87th Mission Support Group, many of whom are serving overseas. The children will receive the toys during a children’s holiday party at the base, which Santa will attend.

The Van Dyk Group is helping with the toy drive as a public service, said Marketing Director Jerry Thompson, who noted that many of the active duty military personnel live locally.

The three Van Dyk Group office locations are: in Barnegat at 500 Barnegat Blvd. North, Suite 300; in Beach Haven Terrace at 12800 Long Beach Blvd.; and in Manahawkin at Route 72 and Jennings Road.

Thompson can be reached at 609-597-1988 for those with questions.

Also, the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce is a drop-off point for the collection on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 25. That location is 265 West Ninth Street, Ship Bottom.  —M.S.
